The police are investigating the deaths of two Italian men who were found dead inside a residence in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City early Wednesday.

The victims — identified by Italian media as Alessio Picelli, 48, and Luca Nogaris, 39 — were discovered by a third man at around 2:45 a.m. inside 40-19 29th St., a short-term rental building. All three men were living in the building and were in the country for about a month on a work trip, according to published reports.

Responding police officers arrived on the scene at around 3 a.m. and found the victims unconscious with no signs of physical injuries. EMS pronounced the men dead at the scene, police said.

A cause of death has yet to be determined. However, drug paraphernalia was found near their bodies indicating that they may have suffered a drug overdose, according to reports.

The two victims had been working on a high-end townhouse renovation project in Manhattan, according to the New York Daily News.

The pair returned to their apartment after work Tuesday while their roommate who made the shocking discovery returned hours later, according to reports.
